Science needs presenters who present their scientific results in a self-confident manner. But how do I orally bring my content across in a convincing manner?  How do I control my voice?  How do I stand? How do I move, and how can I have fun when speaking in front of an  audience?

In addition to content-related competence and subject-matter knowledge, the way of speaking is of particular importance: contents are conveyed through people. When presenting, it is hardly ever the content that counts the most but HOW you  bring the content across to the listener.

This requires professional rhetoric skills. How you speak, how you talk, how you convince: you will present orally.
Nevertheless, the content remains the prerequisite for a good  presentation. Only what comes across will be there. This workshop is conducted as part of the WiNS Adlershof program (Women in Natural Sciences).
